E
I watch the waves go in and out

Like some uncertain chore
  Cm
I understand the habit as they

Break upon the shore
  G#
I keep this lonely vigil so

My heart won't break no more
   E
I'm waiting for Gilligan

E
The days turn into week

And the weeks turn into years
  Cm
And there's some that say I'm crazy

When they see me sitting here
   G#
Tell all who would commit me

That I know what commitment is
   E
I'm waiting for Gilligan

Cm
The short wave has been

Broken down for years
      G#
But I'm listening with much more
            Bb
Than just my ears
       Bb
I'm waiting for Gilligan

E
The Captain's kids are captains now

And most have come and gone
  Cm
On motor boats and sailing ships

With cargoes of their own
   G#
My fingers cross with every ship

That makes the trip back home
E
I'm waiting for Gilligan


E
If practice makes for perfect

Well, I think I've got it down
  Cm
After thirty years of waiting

For a man who's not around
   G#
If faith and hope were made of gold

Then I would wear that crown
 E
I'm waiting for Gilligan


Cm
To look at me

The years may seem unkind
       G#
But there's just enough of me left
      Bb
Not to mind
      Bb
I'm waiting for Gilligan


  Cm
I'm no prisoner to my passion
  E
Any more than some of you
  Cm
When I lay down I dream about
  E
A love I know that's true
  Cm           
I know folks who laid side by side
  Gm
For years and never knew
               G#
That they were stranded

Now, I want you to tell me
   Fm
Somebody tell me
                 Bb
Who's on an island now?

E
I know he's out there somewhere

And if he don't come home to me
      Cm
Then I'll go out to meet him

If they'd bury me at sea
   G#
Then we will be together

And I'll no longer be
E
Waiting for Gilligan

     Cm
You tell Ginger, Mrs Howe

And Maryann
  G#
I'll always burn the candle
       Bb
For my man
E
I'm waiting for Gilligan
